How to schedule wireless radios?

    Firstly, many thanks to the community for developing and supporting Tomato. I recently installed Toastman's build on an e3000 and I'm very pleased with the resulting performance, stability, and features. It replaces an old Netgear FVS318 router and Netgear WG102 access-point so, naturally, the improvements are significant!

    I've searched the forum but was unable to find a post describing how to to schedule the e3000's wireless radios.

    First, I assume there is no way to schedule the 2.4GHz and 5 GHz radios separately? I don't need that capability but I'd appreciate it if someone could confirm.

    Second, I read the documentation for the "wl" command and it seems that "wl radio" toggles the radio on/off. Are there discrete commands to turn the radio on and off or is toggling the only way to do it?

    Third, is using Administration >Scheduler > Custom1 to turn the radio off, and Custom2 to turn it on, the only way to do it or is there a better way?

    Look under Access Restriction, that's rather easier to use.

    OK, I'm embarrassed! I thought I had gone through all the menus but I failed to drill into that one. That's everything I'm looking for and much more!

    Thank you!
